    @Raidriar
    Are you planning on getting a 330W PSU and test the full potential of that notebook? Would be interested to know how far it can get with CPU at a good clockspeed and OCed GPU's

    for some reason i cant PM you directly.

    few questions i wanna ask

    1. is your 680M 2GB or 4GB variant?

    2. understand your 680M is dell branded. does it work flawlessly with M17xR2 without any vBIOS mod? meaning does auto fan work without additional software? and video outputs (HDMI, DP) work?

    3. how much are you willing to sell?

    thanks

    Dell version is only 2GB, no 680M works in the M17x with native fan control, need Hwinfo to control fans. Clevo or Dell it doesn’t matter. SLI connector present unlike some MSI cards. Svl7 throttle free vBIOS flashed. Can run latest driver without problem, 8970M cannot (brightness broken)
